Okay so I didn’t really break my back but I have been in a shit-ton of pain since Saturday. I was driving to work and all of a sudden my lower back (basically my ass) started bothering me. I ignored it but as I started my day working I was getting really sharp pain and I was unable to sit down. I was able to get a co-worker to run and get me some ibuprofen. After work I went home and laid down with some ice.

Sunday was more of the same but I did start to feel a tad better so I went into work today. Big mistake! Within an hour I started getting more pain so I called the doctor. Now I’m not sure if this is good or bad but they didn’t prescribe me anything stronger than ibuprofen but at the same time I could have really used some stronger meds-oh well. I came home spent the rest of the day with the heating pad again, oh yea I fell asleep for a few hours too.

So needless to say my weekend was pretty darn boring because I was in too much pain to go do anything. I will tell you that I managed to eat my weight in those damn Veggie Straws. I bought some on Friday and I’m ashamed to admit I just finished off the bag. Clearly I have no self control. Today I also missed a lot of action in my classroom, we are getting chicks! Well soon-to-be chicks, the eggs and the incubator arrived today, now we must wait 21 days to see the baby chicks. I also missed my internship today because of my stupid back. I’m really hoping to get back at it tomorrow. We shall see!

Well I hope your weekend and start to your week has/is better than mine!

Cheers!

    ugh back ache is the worst, sitting doesn’t help, standing doesn’t help it’s like there is no real answer. I take ibuprofen and paracetamol, and I was told a few years ago the best position to sleep in on your side, with the top leg over the bottom one. So if you are on your right side, you would put your left leg right over the left leg and on the bed the other side of it like you are in the recovery position if that makes sense. oh and only one pillow. I sleep like this and it really does help.
